GS1 UK Healthcare Conference 2019

GS1 UK healthcare conference 2019

Helping the NHS save thousands of lives and millions of pounds

Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 April 2019
Radisson Blu Edwardian, London Heathrow

Enabling improved patient safety

Building on the improvements already being made in the NHS using GS1 standards, our 2019 conference will feature trust leaders sharing their implementation successes and we’ll hear from national leaders on why digital standards are so important for the future of healthcare.

Looking to our challenge to tackle never events, set by Sir Professor Terence Stephenson at our last conference, trust CEOs will update us on their progress in aiding clinicians to avoid them by using scanning as a decision support and we’ll also get an update on the latest developments in NHS policy, practice and how GS1 standards will help.

I think the conference is great. It’s fantastic to see healthcare providers and industry coming together to solve some of these issues."

Lorna Wilkinson, Director of Nursing at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust
